Teaser Tuesday: Showgirls, Teen Wolves, and Astro Zombies

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers
Remarkably, many scenes are played out with an Ingmar Beergman level of earnestness.  "Is anyone really in love?" the film asks.  It's a movie whose heart would be on its sleeve, if only it was wearing one.
~ p 147, Showgirls, Teen Wolves, and Astro Zombies, Michael Adams

  1. It's hard to get a random spot on the nook, but from where I am in a book...
    From Chapter 5 of 'The Design of Everyday Things' by Donald Norman

    To Err is Human. "London-an inexperienced computer operator pressed the wrong key on a terminal in early December, causing chaos at the London Stock Exchange. The error at stockbrokers Greenwell Montagu led to systems staff working through the night in an attempt to cure the problem."
